With one victory and a second-place finish in his last two GoBowling.com 400s, Jeff Gordon has a great opportunity to win back-to-back races for the first time since 2007. That year he won the UAW-Ford 500 at Talladega and the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte in consecutive weeks.
In last year’s edition of the GoBowling.com 400 Kasey Kahne passed Gordon on a late-race restart to win. Last week Gordon returned the favor. Pocono has long been one of Gordon’s best tracks and he leads all drivers with six wins. Jul 30 - 9:53 AM

Jeff Gordon passed teammate Kasey Kahne with 16 laps remaining and held off the field to score his fifth Brickyard 400 victory.

Most importantly, Gordon’s victory came as the result of a perfect restart. The biggest issue faced by this team in 2014 has been losing significant ground on restarts. Fantasy players hope this is a trend that can continue and if it does Gordon will be a place-and-hold driver in all styles of games.

Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, Denny Hamlin, and Kevin Harvick could all clinch spots in the Chase at Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend. The magic number leaving the Crown Royal 400 is 289 points ahead of 31st-place in the points. Any driver ahead of that mark will be in the playoffs.

The fantasy impact for these seven drivers depends on their willingness to gamble for a victory. Last week at New Hampshire, Gordon and Harvick finished badly after rolling the dice on fuel and coming up snake eyes. They will be risky propositions on several occasions leading up to the Chase. If one of these drivers finish badly in back-to-back races, however, look for them to change strategies to gain some momentum.

Jeff Gordon has not won at Indianapolis Motor Speedway since 2004 but six of his last seven attempts there ended in top-10 finishes.

Four of those efforts were top-fives including a fifth in the tire-killing 2008 contest, which suggests Gordon knows how to take care of his equipment in this marquee 400-mile affair. Fantasy owners should expect another top-10 from him this week.

Jeff Gordon has the most consecutive top-10 so far in 2014. Nine of his 13 such finishes came on the heels of another top-10 and there are only two occasions in which he finished outside that mark in consecutive races.

This tendency to double-down in regard to top-10s has made him one of the most appealing fantasy values all year. Notably, he has finished with consecutive top-fives only once, however, and that came at Daytona and Phoenix to start the season.

Jeff Gordon is the only driver in the Cup field with an average finish better than 10th. Just past the mid-point of the 2014 season, he has an average of 9.6.

Last week’s Camping World RV Sales 301 revealed a risky side to drivers already locked into the playoffs, however. With a Chase berth virtually secured and only seven races remaining until Chicagoland, teams are going to adopt increasingly risky strategies like Gordon’s failed fuel mileage gambit. This is going to rob fantasy players of valuable points on several occasions and make handicapping them accurately a difficult proposition.

Jeff Gordon attempted to stretch his fuel mileage at New Hampshire, but a green-white-checkered finish extended the race and caused him to run out of gas under caution. He finished 26th in the Camping World RV Sales 301. Gordon was in second when he ran out of gas.

By comparison, Denny Hamlin had been running second prior to the caution with Gordon third, but the No. 11 pitted for fuel and was able to climb into the top 10. Still, the race was a qualified success for Gordon who lost a lap early when a right rear tire lost air during a long green flag segment. His willingness to gamble after scoring a victory this season reveals the danger of starting drivers with nothing to lose.

Jeff Gordon (No. 24 Chevrolet SS) has the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the first Saturday practice for the Sprint Cup Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

His average of 132.450 mph was best of the 21 cars that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this session. Denny Hamlin, Jamie McMurray, Kasey Kahne, Tony Stewart, Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, Paul Menard and Kevin Harvick, respectively, are the rest of the top 10 on this list.

When Greg Biffle crashed at the end of the Coke Zero 400 and the team did not have enough time to repair his Ford, he passed the mantle of most consecutive races in which a driver was running at the end to Jeff Gordon. The No. 24 driver’s mark currently stands at 36 consecutive races.

Thirty-six consecutive races is the equivalent of one full season, which is remarkable in its own right. Teams that consistently repair their cars to log a few more laps earn extra points for their fantasy owners.

Jeff Gordon enters the Camping World RV Sales 301 with a 17-race, top-15 streak at New Hampshire dating back to the fall 2005 race.

In that span of races, he earned five top-five finishes with the most recent coming in 2012. Last year his best finish was 10th, but consistency makes him a solid fantasy play.
